Biometric software security systems enhance security by linking a unique physical attribute of a user to the data that they are allowed to access. The user provides their fingerprint (or other biometric) to the system, which is then authenticated against a stored template.
Biometrics add an additional factor of authentication and are therefore a significant improvement in computer security. The most common biometric security systems use fingerprints, but these systems can also use iris and retinal scans, hand geometry, and facial recognition technology.
Acknowledged as the fastest security scanner on the market today, Retina is designed to identify known and unknown vulnerabilities, suggest fixes to identified vulnerabilities, and report possible security holes within a network's internet, intranet, and extranet environments. The product's patented technology eclipses the capabilities of the past generation of security scanners and employs a unique artificial intelligence engine that allows the product to think like a hacker or network security analyst attempting to penetrate your network.
Retina is a best-of-breed scanner supported by powerful features that are attractive to the network administrator and the security consultant alike. eEye has committed to making Retina the most feature-rich scanner on the market and actively solicits and incorporates client feedback and requests.
